A.J. Green on Jalen Ramsey comments: Ready to move on from here

AP

Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green revealed that he got a big fine from the league for taking down Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey and throwing punches at him in last Sunday’s game and said he won’t be appealing it.

That’s not the only fallout from the incident that Green would prefer to leave in the rearview mirror. Ramsey said this week that he called Green “soft and weak” during the game, but Green passed on the chance to return fire when asked about it on Thursday.

“I don’t think I have to,” Green said, via the Cincinnati Enquirer. “I did what I had to do. It’s dead now. I don’t want to talk about it or anything. It’s over. I made a mistake. Now move on from here.”

The Bengals won’t play the Jaguars next season unless the two teams finish in the same spot in their respective divisions, which should make it easier to move on without further reminders of what went down last weekend.

  1. Respected veteran 2 time All-Pro, 6 time Pro Bowler A.J. Green
    has earned almost $67,000,000 in his seven seasons.

    2nd year 0 time All-Pro, 0 time Pro Bowler jalen ramsey
    pushes veteran players when their backs are turned after the play is over.

  2. This is the AJ Green I know. All class. All due respect to both players’ skills, my fave coach of all time taught me how to be like a AJ Green, rather than a Jalen Ramsey.

  3. Weak ? Let me see if I’ve got this about right: Ramsey admits hehad been trash talking – and then took a cheap shot at Green after the whistle. Green responded by taking him down like a pi bull with a rag doll. We all saw the video. Ejection and fines. End of story.

    This is a joke. Ramsey pushed him from the side…AFTER Green put his hands on Ramsey. That crap happens all the time. The punk move was what Green did to Ramsey FROM BEHIND afterwards!

    Any don’t you worry…..Ramsey has plenty of Pro Bowls coming in his future.

    Trash talking is what MOST of these guys do….naïve to think otherwise

  6. I was at the game, other than one play out 34 when Green got open and Dalton over threw him, Green got his ass handed to him by Ramsey. They both had pushed each multiple times leading up to Green’s come from behind physical assault. Ramsey did exactly what a top notch CB is suppose to do in the NFL….take other team’s best WR out of the game! One catch for 6 yards? He did his job…..Pro Bowls and big pay days are coming for him, just watch and see!

  7. A.J. Green DESTROYED jalen ramsey.

    The “soft” guy picked up the “tough” guy (who pushes a guy when his back is turned after the whistle/personal foul)… and… picks up ramsey and slams him to the ground TWICE!!!

    LOL!!!

  8. @don – the Bengals lack of an NFL caliber o-line is what led to AJ’s stats. Ramsey is good, but AJ can make plays on anyone man to man, if the offensive would give Andy any kind of a pocket to work in.

  9. I’d rather win on the field where it matters, than win a fist fight. All you Bengal fans saying, “AJ whooped him!”, we’ll.. that doesn’t matter. What happens between the whistles matters.. hence, 1 catch for six yards.

    Ramsey > Green

    Not trashing, but asking a legitimate/fair question. Of all the things to follow on the football field when watching live, without instant replay/DVR to help, you followed Green vs. Ramsey every play?

  11. all of a sudden people don’t like a little shove and some trash talking in football just because the “nice guy” Green got mentally broken down and lost his cool. In all of this, Ramsey is a villain? Y’all do realize that all that trash talk is just that.. trash talk. Some of your favorite athletes were the best trash talkers: Ali, Mayweather, Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Bryant, Pedro Martinez, John McEnroe, Deion Sanders, Richard Sherman..

    Get over it. It’s a mental edge on the field/court/ring. Green is soft for falling for the trash talk. He’s still a very good WR but he showed his mental weakness that game. Pushing and shoving is one thing.. but it’s really weak and soft to coke up from behind and choke slam someone – square up if your really about it. Also, he landed one punch on the helmet and missed the follow up punch. Lol.
